Return True or False if one row from column B contains a certain string for all values of column A

In this example I am trying to return true or false in column C based on whether one of the rows in column B contains the string "white" within a larger string for all distinct values within column A.

Hi @nabraham623 ,

 

Please try:

Measure = 
var _a = COUNTROWS(FILTER(ALL('Table'),[A ]=SELECTEDVALUE('Table'[A ])&&CONTAINSSTRING([B],"white")))
return _a>0

Final output:

hi @nabraham623 ,

 

How about this:

Here the code for the measure:

Measure = 
IF (
    CALCULATE ( 
        CONTAINSSTRING ( 
            MAX ( 'Table'[B] ), "white" ), ALLEXCEPT ('Table', 'Table'[A] )
    ),
    true,
    false
)

 

Let me know, if this helps 🙂

Doesn't look like all distinct values of Column A received a TRUE from my end when they should have.

Hi @nabraham623,

 

Please could you share the data and the screenshot showing which ones do not receive a true though they should have?

 

Thanks
